Looking for Polish food? Then check out Marcus Grill in Shelby Township.
Being of Polish decent I can tell you this is as close to grandma's food as it gets. I recently took my parents there and they agreed and said they for sure would be back. You'll be happy to know that the Polish entrees are made from scratch daily and you can tell.
They originally opened in Detroit about 80 years ago, opened another restaurant in Sterling Heights and now we have a Marcus Grill in Shelby Township and it's close to the office. Which is good for those days when I just can't make it home to cook.
Besides the Polish entrees they are famous for their Detroit Orginial Marcus Burger - an all steak burger in a steamed hot dog bun - a secret recipe since 1929. These are the best and only $3.00 - imagine that! The Detroit News even featured on their website.
Marcus Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they offer nice size servings. My favorite is the mini Polish patter which comes with 1 cheese roll or Palachinski (crepes), 2 pierogi, 2 potato pancakes and a cup of chicken dumpling soup. Usually, half goes home. But many times Ed and I just split this and with the rolls it's enough for lunch.
The owner seen here is so sweet and always there to say hi. Now if you are planning a party Marcus Grill in Shelby Township also offers a room for private parties and will even cater your party. The bar as seen below has a large seating area.
You'll notice right way how clean it is and how friendly the staff is too. They are in the process of putting together a website but until it is complete you can visit www.MarcusGrill.com to view the menu.
The restaurant is located at 55690 Van Dyke between 25 & 26 Mile on the east side of the street. Here is a map. A must visit if you are in the Shelby Township area near Van Dyke and 25 - 26 Mile area.
